WHAT DOES NALOXONE MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Naloxone is a pure opioid antagonist developed by Sankyo in the 1960s. Unlike other opioid receptor antagonists it has no concomitant agonist properties. Naloxone is a drug used to counter the effects of opioid overdose, such as heroin or morphine specifically the life-threatening depression of the central nervous system, respiratory system, and hypotension secondary to opiate overdose. Naloxone is also experimentally used in the treatment for congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis, an extremely rare disorder that renders one unable to feel pain, or differentiate temperatures. It is marketed under various trademarks including Narcan, Nalone, Evzio and Narcanti, and has sometimes been mistakenly called "naltrexate". It is not to be confused with naltrexone, an opioid receptor antagonist with qualitatively different effects, used for dependence treatment rather than emergency overdose treatment. It is also combined with buprenorphine in a drug called Suboxone which is used to treat opioid addiction.
